Soft opening starts July 20th

As stage 3 starts across most of the province, the animal shelter in Chatham will be launching a soft opening starting on Monday, July 20th at 12pm.

Viewing of animals available for adoption will take place on our website at and cat adoptions will continue to take place online until further notice. Dog adoptions will follow the same process with online applications being the first step.

Visitors will only be able to access the front reception area to purchase dog tags, cat or dog food and to bring in stray animals. Only 5 people will be allowed into the building at once and they will be asked to sanitize their hands upon entry.

Current staff restrictions do not allow for proper sanitation of cages and kennels being touched or opened by visitors.

Social distancing floor decals have been installed and ropes are limiting access in the reception.
